morning to our viewers in the west. it is wednesday, october 3rd, 2012. welcome to "cbs this morning." the first presidential debate is tonight and we'll talk with both campaigns and show you why republicans are suddenly agreeing with vice president biden. >>> american airlines claims it's finally figured out why seats are coming apart in mid flight. >>> and we'll meet the tv anchor who fought back on the air after a viewer criticized her weight. >>> we begin with a look at today's eye opener, your world in 90 seconds. >> tonight is the big night of the first of three debate. >> president obama and mitt romney set to square off did in denver. >> dealing with an october surprise after video of an old speech resurfaced. senator obama accuses u.s. government of short changing hurricane katrina victim. >> people down in new orleans they don't care about as much. >> meanwhile joe biden just gave the republicans some great new material. >> how they can justify raises taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> i'm sorry, which candidate is he campaigning for? i'm c
. legend has it that richard nixon heard that jfk was not going to get makeup from cbs for that debate, and so nixon said, well, i won't have any makeup either, then. even though he was running a 102 degree fever and not only was nixon ill that day, it turned out that when jfk turned down the cbs makeup offer, it was because he apparently had his own makeup arrangements already made. and so we got jfk with makeup and no fever, we got richard nixon with no makeup and a fever. what we got on tv in the first televised presidential debate in our nation's history was beauty and the beast. right? of course, jfk went on to win that election that year, whether or not it was because of the debate, i don't know, but thus was born the entire school of punditry that says it's all about the optics and watching things with the sounds off and all that existentially exhausting stuff we still say today. but here is the relevant context for understanding what happened last night. when mitt romney beat president obama in last night's televised debate. so the first televised presidential debate that we ha
is cbs contributor ron insana who is also host of a syndicated radio program called the market scoreboard report and with us from waution, jared bernstein, former economist for joe biden. it's good to have you here. jared, i start with you. as we look at these numbers, is this a true game changer for the president? >> it certainly helps. i mean, this month's decline in the unemployment rate that you have been talking about from 8.1% down to 7.8%, that's the good kind of decline in unemployment because it came from a lot more people getting jobs. if you recall back last month, i was sitting in this chair telling you that the decline in unemployment from 8.3% to 8.1% was illusory. it tells you, as i said, more people came into the job market and got jobs. but it also tells you that the monthly surveys are volatile. however, i think there's other evidence in this report, perhaps we can get into it, that shows some momentum moving in the right direction. the pace of employment growth appears to be accelerating in the payroll survey as well. >> ron, i want to ask you about jack welch's tweet a
polls. oftentimes this is an emotional reaction. whether it's cbs or cnn there was a clear winner in this debates. martha: governor romney had take and lot of heat from conservative watchers of all of this who said he had yet to make a passionate conservative argument throughout the course of this campaign. i think those folks will be satisfied with what they saw last night. he was ago that and connected to what he was saying. he made his points. and he turned that key in a way that may satisfy the bill kristols of the world and the other people who had been negative on him. bill: danville, kentucky, next week for the vp debate. the economy the star of the evening it was topic "a" as to be expected. in moments both campaigns are here live to talk about why they believe their man pulled off a victory last night. >> for 18 months you have been running on this tax plan. five weeks before the election. you are saying the big bold idea is never minds. >> everything you just said about my tax plains inaccurate. two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. bp has paid o
left, they did in 2008 and they're doing it again. >> dana: reuters and cb s news have followed up on the story. if you look at the editorial pages today. >> greg: "usa today." when "usa today" calls you out on a story is a protester calling you out on hygiene. >> eric: they're 20 days late, though. my biggest problem is within a couple of days the guy from the national counterterror said, i think he said look, it looks like terrorism. a couple of days, ambassador rice talking to david gregory and candy crowley and bob schieffer and george stephanopoulos and not one of them pushed back and said what about it? what about the other people saying terrorism? where are you? how can you blame the movie? main stream media is complicit in this tragedy. can i say one point. jon stewart last night jumped on board and is calling the main stream media out. about time you get on board, too. >> greg: bob? you can talk as long as you want. >> bob: i don't want to talk. in your monologue you said they are out to get the american people and to protect america's enemies. strong statement. even comin
in a handful. responders pick him as the winner by 40 points. uncommitted voters polled by cbs news called romney the winner by a 2-1 margin. and 56% said the opinion of romney changed for the better after last fight. 13% said that about the president. ron allen sat down with a group of undecided voters and watched the debate in colorado just a few miles for the university of denver. here's what he found. >> how many of you were impressed by governor romney? how many of you saw something in governor romney that you hadn't seen before? generally speaking. >> ultimately i think he's very compassionate. he seems like his poll is are defensible. >> i'm impressed by governor romney. especially with the hard hit about lack of specifics. >> have any of you now made up your mind? you're still all undecided. >> those stubborn undecided. you can hear more at 11:00 on msnbc. clearly for republicans who were thrilled to be in this room last night, this was a needed shot in the arm. and though the obama campaign has tried to argue romney's aggressive approach, the president governor came off more likab
done. >> greta: any advice for congressman paul ryan? you tweeted today, you retweeted a cbs news, biden praises obama's debate performance. ure added, will joe giff a repeat of that wonderful performance, chicould sense the sarcasm? any advice for congressman paul ryan going into the vice-presidential debate next week? >> well, maybe we ought to start out by the latest gaffe of the gift that keeps on giving, who is a heartbeat away from the presidency, that the american people have been buried -- middle class of america has been buried the last four years. i agree, joe. [chuckles] >> that's where we could start. seriously, gret ai think that paul ryan may not be the most colorful individual, but any number of congress, he knows the issues, he knows them backwards and forwards. i believe it's very likely that on knowledge alone and presentation, which paul has made many times, that he doll well. my job is to lower expectations, he will never be as good as joe biden. but i am going to take a little different approach. i think that paul ryan is going to do very well. i would not ast
the truth. >> you never met -- >> cbs news has exclusive information including documents that now sheds new light on the president's service record. 60 minutes has obtained government documents that indicate mr. bush may have received preferential treatment in the guard after not filling his commitments. >> vote republican and you vote to enable george bush to keep rolling as an emperor, a child emperor. but an emperor. >> i have to tell you, as part of record in this case this election. the feeling most people when they hear barack obama speech, i feel that's going up my leg. i don't have that too often. it's a dramatic event. there's nothing to do with politics and has to do with the guy we have about our country. and that is an objective assessment. >> i read that she once took a psychological test is that the position you are most suited for his undertaker. >> on the bus ride up on the snowy road to lebanon, new hampshire, i showed him this week's "newsweek" off the presses. >> how does this feel of all the honors that have come your way, all the publicity? >> well, i have not seen this
party and richard nixon. and though my colleague from cbs and is referred to there has asked, i did not feel richard nixon did a complete answer. he referred to me as a non- essential question or some words of that effect. he did not answer it well. it stuck with him. it was the party he was confused of not having the confidence of president -- of president eisenhower, because of a great way that is what the republican line was, experience that counts. >> you were free to pursue that question, right? >> no vetting of questions. i heard about the debate the day before when i was covering nixon and the south. i got on the train that went to chicago, and went in on the following monday to go wbbm cbs affiliate in chicago. we sat in a row, and all we did was introduce ourselves to the camera. our producer went on to produce "60 minutes." that was it. >> in that clip richard nixon looks very confident and gave you a long answer. clearly anticipated some part of this. what we remember was the recollection that he was sweating heavily, nervous and prepare. you were in the room in that part
to bring you in on this, kevin madison with the romney campaign, he was on cbs, he was asked about this tape. let me play it. >> we believe, as a campaign, i think governor romney believes what is most relevant is the president's policies and how they are affecting the economy today, how they are affecting people's bottom line, how they are affecting household incomes. >> does this show a priority list difference, perhaps some of the conservative commentators, chip, wanting to find their a ha moment to get back, i guess, that the 47% video of romney as opposed to what kevin madden says answered the campaign would like to talking about, the priorities getting this economy turned around? is there a divide within conservatives in the party on how to fight back? >> when you are running a campaign and there's other groups doing everything, always doing something else. kevson very smart, keeping it focused on jobs and the economy and the romney campaign. and i think the only a ha is going to matter today about 9:01 when the debate starts and these two guys are on the same stage together.
the cbs poll and the cmn instant polls and the yen consensus is not divided along partisan lines. overwhelmingly people saw the president lost that not because they thought governor romney's tax plan adds up, not because they want to turn medicare into a voucher, it was purely, as far as i am concerned, style and confidence. > >> rose: when the governor says, you know, the rich will pay the same share they have been paying or more, he is right abou th? >> well, that is very hard to answer. because he said that, he said that will be a defining principle of his tax plan but he also laid out a number of defining principles and he cannot rit matically, a rit matically define all of those principles. he can choose not to compromise on that and say under absolutely no circumstances will the shared tacks pay by the rich go down but he can't then also have the scale of ghuts rates that he wants, and so i think we just don't know whether that is the case. what we know is he has been very specific about a cut in rates that would benefit the top a lot and he then said i will find ways to of
manufacturing jobs and a testimonial from a former unlv star greg anthony a college basketball analyst for cbs sports. >> i voted for barack obama. i thought he would be a centrist. i really lost faith in him. i'm supporting mitt romney. he is a no excuse kind of guy and i think over the last four years we've heard enough excuses. >> bottom line question for romney is this. does his debate performance move the needle in the three big midwestern battleground states of ohio, iowa, and wisconsin? the romney campaign is clearly still wary about the toxic effect of the obama campaign's attacks on his personal wealth and also the damage of romney's own 47% comment. yesterday hailed as a hero in denver romney repeated one phrase he introduced on wednesday night, again and again and again. >> i saw the president's vision as trickle down government. trickle down government. trickle down government. trickle down government. trickle down government. >> that trickle down government phrase looks like an attempt to neutralize attacks on his tax plan as just one more version of, quote, trickle down economics
's the problem for those who think this is an intellectual discussion on c-span. today the new poll came out cbs, 56%. the 13%, the die-hards. they were going to say he looked better. >> the big question is, why? i think if the president cares as passionately about his vision as he says, if he believes in it as deeply as he does, then he needs to defend it more forcefully and specifically than he did tonight. it almost seemed like he was irritated that the fact that things were being questioned. >> and i thought he got -- if he had stepped back the first time the guy said i people about people on social security. he should have said, 47% of the krif is a bunch of moochers. before i came along, 40 million people had no health care. they were all herded into the e.r. and that's where they would be there if it wasn't for me and the people helped me do it and that's where you are. you want to go back to the e.r. how dare you say we have contending or offering different health care plans. one gay has it and one guy doesn't. >> i'm going to say, look -- i'm acting like the moderator here. >> i think y
. >> the national latino media sign a memorandum of understanding with abc, nbc, cbs, and fox, and it was about we need to know who is working in front of the camera and who was working in back of camera in the entertainment sphere. we have since then gone out did that news, parts of their operations, and has there been progress? yes, incremental. we do not have a choice but to push harder because of what came out of here. we anecdotally already knew -- this is a report from latin decisions, and what he did, he interviewed 900 people on what they thought about latinos and on another part of it, 3000 people on what they thought about latinos. they were all white people. what they thought, coincided with what news they were looking at. we put entertainment in there, television news, radio, and we also put journalism. if they were young and new latinos, they tended to have a good attitude about latinos. if they were older and watching fox news, they did not think very highly of us. what were those things they did not think highly of that were not paid drug, intelligent, that we're taking jobs away fr
people, our polls, the cbs poll, our by three to one showed that the president lost and romney won. >> well, you know what the history is here of the first debate against an incumbent president, five out of the last six times the challenger was perceived as winning. the first time you're on stage next to the president of the united states it adds stature. we haven't seen any fundamental shift in the dynamic of this race. it's been close and competitive for a year and a half. it will be won in key states. that's where the president is today in denver, in wisconsin, making his case about the economic choice in this election. >> i thought romney was pretty effective in turning around what could have been a liability into an asset last night on the whole issue of health care reform. listen to this. watch this. >> i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i liked the fact that in my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. as a matter of fact, when massachusetts did somethin
but it is rising. >> over on the right side here. >> steve space from w cbs radio. the pre-election polls i've always wondered why our listeners, viewers and readers need to know how other people plan to vote and poison the voting poll and recite them on the radio i'd like to hear the of a panelist thoughts on why do we report the polls? >> who wants to take that? >> it's the way that we gauge the narrative of the race in which way the momentum is. i was in virginia talking to people in prince william county and republicans who voted for john mccain four years ago. i don't know i'm going to do it doesn't like this is going to win it's not necessarily wanting to vote for the loser. it does affect some voters. >> on the other hand, it's not so where earlier in the cycle you say they didn't have a chance i'm not the only one who likes him and maybe he can pull this out and we are curious and want to know what other -- we also want to be part of the conversation with people and know what other people are thinking and i am not sure i think that is such a bad thing and need to be put into isolati
university "new york times" cbs news poll shows obama leading in ohio, florida and pennsylvania. it matches our own marist polling which shows the president leading in all nine swing states. joining me now, peter brown, the assistant director of the quinnipiac university polling institute. peter, i want to ask you about historically speaking have the polls been largely accurate? >> yes. the polls have been quite accurate over time. now, everybody likes to point to the 1948 election when the polls said that thomas dewey would win the election and he didn't. harry truman did. that was 40 years ago when polling was in its infancy. polls are very good at telling you what the situation is at the time they're taken, not a week from thursday, not two months from tomorrow. they're good for then. >> that snapshot, right. some of the gop complain the pollsters are oversampling democrats in the swing states. are they overestimating democratic turnout for november? can you explain how this works? >> sure. the key is that we and most of the other major polls do not weight by party. that is, there is no
's hockey, so we can keep moving. [ laughter ] >> and jimmy hoffa has not been found. cbs news reports the police found no traces of human decomposition after digging in a back yard after a tip he may have been buried there. he was last seen october 30, 1975. his disappearance remains a mystery today. >> it does remain a mystery. there's a restaurant in detroit called match's red fox where he was last seen before he disappeared. >> you're from detroit. >> known for being the last seen of jimmy hoffa. they've got the giant stadium. >> that's the big rumor that he's in the end zone of giants stadium. >> hold on before you go, there's one story we haven't talked about today which is the american airlines seats being loose. >> yes the not-bolted-down seats. that's a huge mess. >> for anybody out there who ever gets on an airplane, the one thing you want to do when you buckle in seatbelt is not going flying around. >> now american airlines wants to charge you an extra fee for buckled down seats. the baggage fee and now the buckled down seat fee. >> someone said it was sabotage by maybe some
is on cbs talking about why she chose to speak out. >> this was a personal attack, not only on my size, but on my ability to role model our community, and young girls and i'm a mother of three girls and that hit home and i did not think that is fair. that e-mail was well written. it was articulate. but make no mistake about it, it was meant to hurt my feelings. it was meant to shame me into losing weight. and in my opinion, that's a bully. >> livingston has already received overwhelming support from viewers and co-workers. >>> forbes released its list of the highest paid women in entertainme entertainment. the woman in the top spot won't surprise you much. cnn entertainment correspondent kareen wynter is with us this morning. spill it. >> that's right, carol. she claims the spot year after year. of course, oprah winfrey, she's at the top of the list. according to forbes, while she may not keep the top spot for long, according to estimates, oprah made $165 million between may 2011 and may of this year. giving her an estimated net worth, this is just astonishing, of $2.7 billion. forbes
: according to a cbs news poll last night, about half say romney won. but michelle, 56% say that their opinion of romney changed for the better. only 13% say their opinion of mr. obama changed for the better. in the meantime, you know what? president obama showed that he was a little thin skinned last night and, in fact, told the moderator how to do his job, but first before we see that, let's see mitt romney on the tear last night. >> i don't want to cost jobs. my priority is jobs. so what i do is i bring down the tax rates, lower deductions and exemptions, the same idea behind bowles simpson. get the rates down, to create more jobs because there is nothing better for getting us to a balanced budget than have more people working, earning more money, paying more taxes. that's by far the most effective and efficient way to get this budget balanced. >> jim, you may want to move on to another topic. >> steve: up with of the things about the president last night is for all of the many points that mitt romney had right up here, and he was able to effectively communicate them, the president had noth
